At the age of 85, Betty Reid Soskin became a national park ranger. She celebrated her 100th birthday a decade and a half later and claimed she still had work to do.
Soskin was born in Detroit, Michigan, on September 22, 1921.
Soskin’s hometown of Richmond, California, decided it was her turn to be the center of attention for her birthday this year.
“I believe it is critical that we all pursue our passions,” Soskin added. “We all require a sense of purpose.”
